February might as well be called “Continental Championship Month.” The African, European and Asian Wrestling Championships are all sandwiched between February 4-23.
This year’s continental championships hold extra weight — especially during the Olympic year. The continental championships grant those Olympic-qualified wrestlers an opportunity to improve on their ranking and earn up to 22 Ranking Series points.
